Common Questions:

What is the difference between latex, nitrile, and vinyl gloves?

Latex gloves are the old standard in gloves, you've probably seen them. They are tight fitting and protective. They used to be used for industry and medical purposes, but many people have an allergy to them. Thus, there is a need for nitrile and vinyl.

Nitrile gloves are stronger and have a lower defect rate. They are the toughest and many times the best type of gloves for medical or other purposes. They are like latex gloves, but they don't irritate latex allergies.

Vinyl gloves are an alternative that are many times looser fitting like food service gloves, and not as dependable as nitrile gloves. They are less expensive than nitrile gloves, though they are not as good of a replacement if you are used to latex gloves

How fast is shipping?

Shipping is always free with USAMedicalGloves.com, which you will not find a lot of places. We try to process the order within 24 hours and ship out within 2-3 days. There are some exceptions, but usually the order comes from the nearest warehouse and thus is very fast.

What kind of gloves do I need for around the house?

We recommend nitrile gloves for around the house unless you are 100% sure you don't have a latex allergy. A good nitrile glove is the Cypress Nitrile Glove Syntrile. A good latex glove is the McKesson Confiderm PF latex glove. Both gloves are free shipping.
